In-form O'Hara leads chase for £2,324 prize at Dumfries and Galloway

Man in form Paul O'Hara is the halfway leader of the £14,530 Kerr Investments Order of Merit 36-hole pro-am at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club.

Winner of the Scottish young professionals' championship earlier this week, for the third time in the past four years, O'Hara (pictured) shot a bogey-free, six-under par 64 to lead by one from Alastair Forsyth, Jason McCreadie, Graham Fox and Graeme Brown.
Greig Hutcheon, always to the fore when there's big money at stake - first prize is £2,324 -  shot a 66 to be sixth overnight.
O'Hara birdied the first, long fifth, short eighth, ninth, short 15th and 17th in halves of 32.
Forsyth bogeyed the 18th or else he would have been sharing the lead. 
McCreadie had a bogey-free round but parred the last two holes when a sixth birdie would have given him a share of the lead.]
Brown had a double bogey 6 at the 10th but responded with birdies at the 14th, 16th and 17th.
Fox's four birdies stopped at the 14th and he parred in.
